Engraving. Sheet 290 x 210mm (11½ x 8½"). Trimmed; creases.
Benjamin Disraeli (1804-81) Conservative Prime Mininster in 1868 and from 1874-80. He is still the only Prime Minister of Jewish descent, although his family became Anglicans when he was aged 12. This portrait, from a photograph by John Jabez Edwin Mayall, predates his premiership and was probably taken for a carte-de-visit; this print was published for the 'Illustrated News of the World'.
